Radio Farm Forum (RFF)

Description: 
A program that was produced in Zambia in the 1960’s as a means of improving communication between the Ministry of Agriculture and the agricultural service staff. The motivation for strengthening this communication link was to effectively disseminate agricultural information to a large and dispersed population of rural farmers and to increase agricultural productivity and thereby create a form of sustainable economic development for Zambia. Currently, there are about 1,440 RFFs in Zambia. These RFFs have had a significant positive impact on the lives of farmers in rural communities in Zambia. They have taught farmers how to change and improve their agricultureal practices, including how to survive through droughts, prevent their soil from eroding, and construct more durable storage barns.
